I did a tasting yesterday with four young guys. We tasted Knob Creek, Maker's 46, Woodford Reserve, and Basil Hayden.
Everything was served at bottle proof and I told them what the proofs were. Water was provided for dilution, if they wanted to. I did warn them that they probably did not want to dilute the Hayden.
I asked which one they liked best and Basil Hayden was the consensus pick.
